On behalf of GoalNepal supporters, GoalNepal Province 1 chief operating officer & Journalist, Janam Baral handed over the money to Rai in presence of his parents on Sunday. With the provided money, Prajwal's parents now clear the loan they have received for the treatment.

His family - whose financial background is not sound - spent Nrs 5,50,000 for the treatment. Rai has already been discharged from the hospital.
His family expected support from GoalNepal.
We ran a fund raising campaign to support Rai and his parents for medical bills. The GoalNepal supporters raised Nrs 4,66,129. Dharan sub metro is expected to cover remaining money.
